teoria_del_big_bang Posted July 28, 2021 Share Posted July 28, 2021 First off apologies if this is in wrong section as there is no section for accessories as far as I can see. But I am quite fancying one of THESE. But at £600 they do not come cheap so I do have a couple of questions if anyone has one, used one or has a DIY substitute. 1) I see there is the ability to have the Altinak Flip-Flat Dust Cover in EKOS but does this include the flat field generator so you can close the dust cover then turn on the flat field and automatically take flats after taking all your images ? I am assuming a lot here in that if you are taking flats then EKOS will shut the cover and turn on the flat field itself and a script is not required. Similarly that if you specify darks it will shut the cover but not turn on the flat field (probably not good enough sealing for darks so would not use this option). 2) Is there any DIY projects that still could do the above via EKOS sequence ? I do remember that @steppenwolf did make a brilliant one some years ago that was in Sky at Noght magazine but not sure how automated it was and whether it could be controled via EKOS.
